I just got home from my dealer. I tried both the T230 straight and the T230 curved. I have never used a curved shaft trimmer I have always thought they were unprofessional. I must say I was extremely impressed with the T230 curved shaft. Unlike other curved shafts the shaft is long enough so the trimmer head isn't near your toes. Just curious if any of you guys are running t230's with curved shafts. I'm really torn, I liked them both. What do you guys think?
